BOARD OF TRUSTEES MEETING POSTPONED
NYSERDA REQUESTS LIPA POSTPONE CONSIDERATION OF OFFSHORE WIND PROPOSAL
UNTIL RELEASE OF STATEWIDE WIND BLUEPRINT DRAFT REPORT AND CLEAN ENERGY STANDARD
The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) received a request late this evening by its partner agency NYSERDA (New York State Energy and Research Development Authority) to postpone tomorrow’s consideration of an off-shore wind farm to align the proposed Long Island project with the State’s off-shore wind master plan and the State’s Clean Energy Standard, both of which are scheduled to be released in the next several weeks.
Based upon this request, LIPA will postpone tomorrow’s Board of Trustees meeting until after the release of the State’s off-shore wind report. There are no time sensitive matters on LIPA’s Board agenda, and the Authority expects to reschedule the meeting after the release of the NYSERDA off-shore wind blueprint.
LIPA remains committed to its renewable energy goals and meeting the energy needs of the South Fork.
